Open-source standards for MR pulse sequences and data have been recently developed, but there is no unified platform for combining them with implemented simulation, reconstruction, and analysis tools to the best of our knowledge. We designed Virtual Scanner in order to provide a platform that allows rapid prototyping of new MR software and hardware. It also serves as a training tool for MR technicians and physicists. Two modes are provided: Standard Mode mimics MR scanner interfaces to assist training, while Advanced Mode allows customized simulation of each step in the signal chain.
